The topic: Any geologists read this blog?
Hey, if you have some knowledge about rocks, could you go to my family album, stuff section and check out the rock?
There's a QuickTime movie that's a little over a minute long of the sides of the rock.
I'd really like to know what I've got here.

I am no expert on rocks and have some whatzits of my own, but it does look like there is iron pyrite in there. I love the inspector.

I agree with Norah. It looks like iron pyrite or fool's gold.
I enjoyed seeing Benny in the movie!!

P.S. Benny was cute. "Pay attention to me, Ma!" Even added a well placed tail swish for emphasis. Haha

Thanks, guys, I think the answer might be what's known as "Peacock Ore". I was given this link over at the forums and it sure looks similar to what I've got here.
Meteorite. Yeah. Right. I guess we won't be retiring anytime soon.
